Foles is a Super Bowl champion but there was once a time he lost his passion for the NFL and contemplated retirement. In the YouVersion plan, "Professional Football Players On Humility & Surrender," the Eagles third round draft pick in 2012 revealed that God told him to take a leap of faith with his career to ultimately glorify Him.

"At that moment, through that prayer, He said, 'Hey, just take a step of faith.' You're either going to stop playing the game of football and you're going to go onto a different area of your life and I'm going to be with you," he said.

"I'm going to be the most important thing in your life, or you're going to step back into football and you're going to continue to play and I'm going to be with you every step of the way and you're going to play to glorify me."
